(Interview) Norton Hall Band on Hymns

Photo from Youtube

What did your church sang this Lord’s Day? Did it lift both your soul to worship and your voice to praise the goodness of Christ? Does it prepare your spirit for the weekly servings of God’s Word through the sermon? Does it convey words that you can’t express on how to be thankful for God’s providence? Does it bring you to tears knowing the truth of God through the lyrics of the song? I hope and pray that it’s a blessing to you as you sang either a contemporary worship song or hymns.

The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) has this group called Norton Hall Band that plays a fresh take on hymns. They have a new album, Still Our Refuge which is the third album they released this year. I reach out with Evan Sams, guitarist of Norton Halls Band to talk about hymns, their band and their new album.

For those who are not familiar with hymns, can you define what a hymn is?

Book Review: “The Registered Church in China”(Wayne Ten Harmsel)

The decade of 2010’s ends with news of how the Chinese government is persecuting some unregistered Christian churches in that country. Not that it’s something new because persecution is always been there specially from a communist country. What made this quite a shocker is that it’s more aggressive by closing churches, bringing down the cross symbols and getting pastors jailed. Added to that are videos of the arrest and various ministries asking for prayers for these believers spilled.

But the truth is, that’s just a side of the story.

“…there is a God who is sovereign, whose will is greater than ours. His will restricts my will. My will cannot restrict His will. When He decrees something sovereignly, it will come to pass—whether I like it or not, whether I choose it or not. He is sovereign. I am subordinate.”
